The Yoga of Embodiment

INHABITING THE BODY AND SOUL OF YOUR STORY: A YEARLONG QUEST WITH MINTON SPARKS AND JANE HOUSE

You are invited to join a circle of Soul Questers for 2019 where we will celebrate the feminine capacity for communion with the mysterious. Honoring any limitations of the physical body while never forgetting the limitlessness of the Spirit. Find your inner balance through writing and yoga!

How might an intimate circle of like-minded soul seekers hold your story while it transforms? We will have your back so that you can create something unimaginable. The body is a doorway and the Art is sitting there holding it’s breath waiting to find the light of day.

Our first weekend is February 1-3, at the beautiful Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville, Tennessee where we will study with questing expert Melea Seward from Brooklyn, NY.
The second weekend is March 22-24 at the stunning Gray Bear Lodge in Hohenwald, Tennessee.
The third meeting is July 12-14 at Scarritt Bennett.
The fourth meeting will be a Vision Quest at a TBD site.

In 2001, Jane co-founded a yoga school in San Francisco that became her home for teaching and learning for nearly a decade of her young adulthood.
